obama and mitt romney. >> dave wood, our war correspondent extraordinaire there will be talk affidavit war in afghanistan. mitt romney had words about the president's treatment of iraq. let's focus on the afghanistan question. it's the 11-year anniversary of the war, yesterday, i believe. mitt romney had an interesting romneyesque take on afghanistan saying he would pursue a real and successful transition to the afghan security forces by the end of 2014 and goes on to say outlining an exit date is pricely the misstep the president made. let's play that sound if we have it. >> in afghanistan, i will pursue a real and successful transition to afghan security forces by the end of 2014. president obama would have you believe anyone who disagrees with his decisions in afghanistan is arguing for endless war. but the route to war and to potential attacks at home is a politically timed retreat that abandons the afghan people to the same extremists who aravage their country. i will evaluate conditions on the ground and weigh the best advice of our military commanders. >> to me that sounds like
about the peace process. this is the same mitt romney, i believe, who was taped talking about the 47% and said, you know, when it comes to the middle east it's never going to happen. i will leave it to the next guy. >> we have that. let's listen to what mitt romney. almost literally said to kick the can down the road. this is part of the infamous 47% videotape taken surreptitiously in florida this year. let's listen to what he said about palestine. >> i look at the palestinians not wanting to see peace anyway for political purposes, committed to the destruction and elimination of israel and these issues and i say there is just no way. so you move things along the best way you can, hope for some degree of stability but recognize this is going to remain an unsolved problem. >> this is what he says today about israel and palestine. >> i will recommit america to the goal of a democratic, prosperous palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the jewish state of israel e. on this issue the president has failed. what should be a negotiation has devolved into heated his

and contrast. governor romney onstage with a plan, talking about promises of the country how we'll fix them. president obama, not that his style was off but i don't think that policies over last 4 years are things you want to brag about or -- >> are you so confident with the lead that governor has been able to post in a week, you take time to advise president obama's campaign? as well as your own? >> lou, let me, i'll put it in context your business, at the end of the day, if you don't have topics to discuss, you come on camera, you can set there and babble, it are not that lou of not prepared, but he didn't have anything to talk about. lou: i'm glad you brought me into it, you are a communications director, hit hitting 100%. >> if we is bring big bird in, i can bring you it. lou: thanks for flattery, governor romney with this lead, the question is automatic this is the nature if you will. not biassed but cant of national media, is it a sustainable bounce. first there is a bounce, then a bounce now it has to be sustainable, and then i i suppoe the next we is for how long? what is your readi
romney leads 49, 48, another tie in the margin of error. with the country still talking about mitt romney's victory the democratic party has decided to go into full attack mode. the strategy seems to be very simple. call mitt romney a liar. >> plenty of people have pointed out what a liar mitt romney is and was last night. i mean if he was talking -- if he was speaking last night, he was lying. >> look, mitt romney had a good night but, you know, even, you know, a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. one good night is not going to erase a year of mitt romney's extreme positions. >> bill: that was pretty vicious, was it not? does the dnc really believe that kind of rhetoric will help the president? does it believe independent voters respond positively to that? i don't think they will. in the realm of politics often misleading statements. "time" magazine story this week runs down statements by both campaigns that are either false or outright propaganda. so for the democrats to call mitt romney a liar is foolish and destructive to their guy, president obama, because the obama campai
failed -- >> tara that was an excellent shift but answer for me about governor romney. we can talk about the president. >> that is my answer. >> no, that is my answer, soledad. >> the answer is that the president -- -- the answer about president obama? >> i think the governor has made his position clear relative to where we stand with israel. >> he hasn't is my point. >> decided to meet with entertainment folks and people like that, rather than benjamin netanyahu and i think that there -- again, there's a clear position here -- >> it's not. it's not. that's my point. my point, tara, hold on. just hold on. my point is, it's completely contradictory. my question is, which is it? >> in your viewpoint. >> okay. then tell me how it's not completely contradictory in your viewpoint, but don't talk about president obama at this moment, answer the question about governor romney. >> we will stand side by side with -- we will stand side by side with israel and -- and -- and the governor has made that clear. i'm not going to get into a big foreign policy debate with you here. that's not -- that's no
, the senior communications adviser for the romney campaign. nice to see you. thanks for talking with us. >> hi, soledad. good morning. absolutely. >> so we know having read some of these excerpts that have been sent out by the campaign that governor romney's going to focus on israel, he's going to focus on the palestinian territories and no big surprise, he's going to focus on iran. why don't you spell out for me exactly what governor romney's position is when it comes to iran? >> well, listen, governor romney is going to clearly spell out the choice that there is this election, particularly when it comes to foreign policy and all of the unrest that is happening in the middle east right now and how we have to address that and that is working with our allies, that is calling terrorism terrorism when we see it, that is acting boldly and strongly with leadership and that's what americans want to see and hear. i think we'll have an opportunity to see that in the speech. i don't want to give out the whole speech. i think that americans will have the opportunity to hear that and see that. but i thin
for the white house as romney did last week. it should be interesting with those two. >> expect them to talk budget numbers and the wonkiness that everybody is talking about. >> we'll see. >>> well, gas prices across the country are still soaring, hitting a national ample of $3.81 a gallon. drivers in california are feeling the pinch like never before. prices across the state soared to a record $4.65 a gallon. you see some even higher than that. a lot of it being blamed on a series of problems, including a refinery power outage. governor jerry brown took emergency steps to increase the supply, but it could take several more days for prices to level off. >>> in venezuela it's another victory for hugo chavez, handily winning and it will leave him in power for six more years. he left his supporters to vote in the street. voting turnout was the highest in decades. some waited for hours but the election was peaceful. >> some people thought he was vulnerable, but he pulls it off. >> apparently not. >>> police in colorado say a backpack found in the town of superior is likely linked to a 10-year-ol
the speech today. romney talked about the need for new leadership and bold leadership to bring a resolution to the israel/palestine situation. when the cameras were not rolling a few months ago when millions weren't listening or watching, romney had a different take on the exact same subject. i'd like to play that right now. >> these are problems that are very hard to solve. i look at the policy for political purposes committed to the destruction and elimination of israel, and he's throwing the issues. i say there's just to way. what you do is you move things along the best wake you can, you hope for a degree of stability but you recognize it's going to remain unsolved. >> so i'm sorry. it gets hard to take this stuff seriously at a certain point with when the guy gives a major foreign policy speech and bash obama for not bringing resolution to this program as president when he has gone in front of a group of people and basically said the best you could do as president is kick the can down the road. i have a hard time taking that seriously. >> unfortunately, he can't say that in the speech.
talked about this a lot. look at this. romney, ahead now in florida, north carolina, ohio and virginia. >> not ohio. >> ohio is down by one. >> he was so far behind. >> what we are seeing, in florida, which is a republican-leaning state if the race is tied, governor romney has a slight advantage. north carolina, he should win, as well. ohio is the key. all the swing states, including virginia, can go to governor romney but unless he wins ohio, he cannot win the election. ohio is now close to deadlocked. >>gregg: governor romney was down double digit. >> he was down in ohio, certainly. i don't know about double digits. notice news organization which spent all the money doing the state polls, we have not had one poll since the debate talking about the effect, favorability and other things. i will say this: one of the things that has happened, the race has the disconnect -- romney should you'd this, the $200 million or more spent making him into an eager and the president never made the charges. i would be out there torpedoing obama's add very advertising, why won't he say it himself? >>
mitt romney is and was last night. i mean, if he was talking, he was speaking last night, he was lying. and look, mitt romney had a good night, but you know, even a, you know, blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> are these dirty attacks, calling mitt romney a liar. is it a good idea for the democrats. we're back with our panel. brian some suggest this is classless to come and attack mitt romney for lying when the president didn't seen prepared and shell shocked and that's the response. he was so shell shocked that mitt romney was lying that he didn't know how to respond. >> and mitt romney's facts were tricky, we don't have time for that. let's include john sununu, romney's surrogate who said that obama is lazy, incompetent. has no idea what's going on. on both sides comments being made and let's not make this one-sided when you're talking about it. >> clayton: is that fair, tammy? >> americans and i think the tea party is a good example of this want to be told the truth. we have impressions of these guys and americans are going to make up their own mind and we know that p
the summer, carol, he talked about that foreign policy trip overseas. mitt romney was strongly criticized by some in the palestinian community after he basically said that the reason why the palestinian territory there is not doing very well is because of cultural differences with israel. there is one excerpt from the speech we want to show to you. this is basically where mitt romney is going to be going with this speech later on this morning. he is going to say, quote, we cannot support our friends and defeat our enemies in t middle east when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate
, that romney had a terrible debate and we'd be talking can we move on and now there's a question now, eric, can the debate of the news of the debate, the effect of the debate overwhelm the jobs number or the reverse? 'cause there's some reaction saying reverse. >> 67 million people watched that debate and the rasmussen had a poll showed the swing states and battle ground states flipping to romney. >> florida, ohio virginia, but ohio came-- and remember we talked about the 9 point difference obama had over romney in ohio and now it's down to 1 and i think this was the day after poll, the day after the debate give it two or three more days, i think further in romney's direction. >> kimberly the last word. >> thank you, this is what i learned for friday. okay, the debate and the number, that's you will need to know. another great line that was-- >> and how is greg gutfeld going to do in front of a monologue that has nothing to do with this video. something that only my challenged co-host could do. ♪ ♪ oh, having a good time ♪ ♪ yeah, i've been working all week, i've been ti >> taking a ba
. >> bill: yeah, he's good in those situation, but so is romney. >> let me talk about the depth of his support. when you look at the political, george washington poll that came out, this is taken mostly before the debate when certainly that's going to switch some support to the republicans, the enthusiasm gap is really big. double digits. some people saying they're -- >> bill: the polls say the romney voters are more motivated than the obama voters. >> it's moving more in that direction. >> bill: marjorie, last word. >> there is another interesting phenomenon. according to cbs "new york times" polling, obama has actually edged out the elite on the economy that romney had. that was his strongest point. so where we going into foreign relation, the next topic, obama has -- >> bill: i don't know if the president is in good shape in there right now after what cbs news said. i got to go. thanks, ladies. plenty more ahead. we'll play you some of the rumble between me and john tutor. give you a taste of what went down. bernie goldberg will analyze. california gas prices five bucks in some plac
's what you're talking about. let's get this straight. it's not about the grand kids. the romney plan is for people 55 and you under -- >> it's giving them the option for something -- >> it will destroy medicare. >> no, it won't. >> this is fascinating stuff. they have been showing for months evenly divided here into two. the registered voters and the likely voters. now they're doing both. among registered voters president obama has a three-point lead over mitt romney. 49%, 46% among registered. but among likely voters romney is leading by two points. if you look at the trend line of recent polling, you can see that obama in the blue line really picked up in september following his convention. we all saw that happen but he dropped and romney started gaining in the past several days following the debate. and as you just mentioned, bob, from ohio the president's firewall, a new cnn/opinion research poll shows obama up by four, 51%/47% among likely voters. that poll was taken after the debate -- actually after the debate. before the debate obama had a wider margin. i should point out som

few minutes you'll see one of campaign ads from the president or the gop opponent, mitt romney. they believe they can hang on our win these key battleground states, that's the road to victory. >> what did the president say about the debate? >> reporter: he talked about health care reform and the auto bailout and he turned his focus to mitt romney. one thing that's been coming up, big bird. >> when he was asked what he would do to cut spending, he said he'd go after public television. for all you moms and kids out there don't worry. somebody is cracking down on big bird. cracking down on him. elmo's made a run for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again but he's bringing the hammer down on sesame street. >> reporter: the president also poked fun at his own lackluster debate performance. he was talking about those performers that you listed at the top of your show. how they perform flawlesses night after night and that's not something he can say about himself. >> big bird is all over the place. the president has more events planned in california but al
romney is and he was last night. if he was talking, if he was speaking he was lying. >> i think that we expected an aggressive debater to show up last night on the debated stage with barack obama. we didn't expect an aggressively dishonest debater. that is what we got. >> we saw the governor romney they had known and problem in the past they haven't seen that person. he finally emerged during the debate. >> you say he lied through his teeth in the republican primaries when he was going to cut taxes for wealthy people. >> he is the sketch guy and transformed himself. we have to wonder which mitt is going to show up. if you layout lie after lie about your own plan as well as what the president has been talking about, of course you can look good. >> democrat and obama obama spin there. mitt romney's gain in the polls following a strong showing. there seem to be something of a theme there, jim. i heard the word liar time and time again. is that what happens what happens? >> it's like a sports game. we were robbed. those were democratic partisans doing the talking. i think the story of that
who talks about america's role in the world in a positive way. >> greta: and now governor romney out in front after pounding president obama in the debate. governor romney taking the lead in the polls in the latest pew polls governor romney leading president obama 49% to 45%. now last month he trailed by eight points. so can governor romney keep the momentum going or is he just on a political roller coaster? former senator fred thompson joins us. good evening, sir. >> good evening. >> greta: the republicans are dancing right now, but i wouldn't measure the drapes yet. >> no, no. still got a lot of campaign to go. but i think that for the first time people got a chance to see mitt romney and a little closer look at barack obama. you know, he hasn't been in that setting in a long time. i wasn't really surprised either case. nobody's ever accused romney of -- i mean obama of being a great debater. his only eloquence is off the teleprompter, in which he's very good at delivering a set piece, but not in that format. romney, on the other hand, has gotten better and better over several year

the debate? >> reporter: first of all the president started off by talking about foreign policy and winding down or ending the war in iraq, and winding down the war in afghanistan and the auto bailout, and he turned his focus to romney of course, and one thing that has been coming up on the road since the debate, big bird. >> when asked what to do to cut spending, he said he would go after television. don't worry, somebody is finally cracking down on big bird. cracking down on him. elmo's made a run for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again, but he is bringing the hammer down on sesame street. >> reporter: the president also poked fun at his own lack luster debate performance, and he was talking about all the list of performers, how they perform flawlessly night after night and he says that's not something he can say about himself. >> the president has more events planned in california, but all are fundraisers, right? >> reporter: the majority -- he does have one unveiling a national monument in northern california and he will do that tomorrow. but the bulk of
on the sunday talk shows. >> i think he was taken aback at the brazenness with which governor romney walked away from so many of the positions on which he's run. walked away from his record. and that's something we're going to have to make an adjustment for in these subsequent debates. >> reporter: now, john, the next debate, among the presidential candidates is very different. it's a town hall format. and it will be moderated by candy crowley. it should be a different format. and a more aggressive president obama. >> there's no question about that. meanwhile, there is news on tap for today. mitt romney giving what his campaign is calling a big foreign policy speech. another one. we get a preview of it overnight. there's excerpts. let me read you one. he says, i believe that america does not lead -- if america does not lead, others will. others who do not share our interests and our values. and the world will grow darker for our friends and for us. america's security and the cause of freedom cannot afford four more years like the last four years. paul, like i said, the romney campaign is billing
started off by ticking off what he said were his accomplishments. talking about foreign policy and winding down -- ending the war in iraq, winding down the war in afghanistan. talking about health care reform and the auto bailout. and he turned his focus to mitt romney. and one thing coming up on the trail since the debate, big bird. >> when he was asked what he would do to cut spending, he said he'd go after public television. so, for all you moms and kids down there, don't worry. somebody's finally cracking down on big bird. cracking down on him. elmo's made a run for the border. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild again. but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street." >> reporter: now, the president also poked fun -- the president also poked fun at his own lackluster debate performance. he was talking about the performers that you listed at the top of the show. how they performed flawlessly night after night. >> big bird, the center of attention. big bird's all over the place. the president has more events planned in california. but all of these are fund-raisers, rig
